The 29 year old ‘Julian Assange’, founder of the controversial WikiLeaks was arrested by British Police, being wanted by Sweden Police for sexual offences… and is supposed to be sent to Sweden, as his bail was rejected by British Court. The arrest has received harsh criticism from all around the world, as violative of free speech.
WikiLeaks, which was founded in December 2006 with a prupose of publishing otherwise unavailable documents from anonymous news sources has been commended by various countries for its contribution as Whistle Blower until the United States diplomatic cables leak on 28 November 2010.
As a result, some group of hackers has declared cyber war (called “Operation Payback”) upon enemies of Wikilinks and hacked Mastercard, VISA, PayPal, the Swiss bank PostFinance, and Assange’s Swedish prosecutor’s website yesterday. And plan tpo target Amazon, Twitter, Facebook, etc. i.e. mostly US Websites. It all seems to be the first Cyber World War as reported by Times of India.
